Here is a photo of my homemade shields for arduino.
Upper-Left:Narduino2.0 – L298 Motor Driver Shield
Upper-Right: MIDI Controller with 3 LEDs for feedback
Lower-Left:Narduino1.0 -Same Functionality with Narduino2.0 except Veroboard.
Lower-Right: IR-Liqard – Data Monitoring Shield with IR receiver.
MIDI Controller Shield is the latest one i made.I used to play with FLStudio just for fun and i thought it would be fun to control pitch , modulator and volume controls with potentiometers. I used LoopBe1 and S2MIDI softwares to convert incoming serial data to a virtual midi port. I recorded a video demo. of the MIDI controller.I’ll upload it asap.
Here i made another project with my brandnew arduino demilanove.In this project i intended to send commands to my laptop computer with an infrared remote controller.I used an old ir receiver that came within video card of my old computer.I also choosed to use its own remote controller to send ir signals.It turned out to be very useful.I wrote a very simple code with python which you can add more responses for different ir signals.
